Close the Gap is an international social enterprise that aims to bridge the digital divide by offering high-quality, pre-owned computers donated by European and international companies to educational, medical and social projects in developing and emerging countries.
Close the Gap collects decommissioned computers from companies and arranges for other organizations to clean the hard disks and then check and configure the hardware according to the requirements of its end-users. The computers are then shipped to the destination country by sea or air transport, to support educational, medical, entrepreneurial and social projects. All the projects are demand-driven and impact-oriented initiatives.
Close the Gap values the sustainable recycling of e-waste. Through Worldloop, we make sure that the donated computers are disposed of in an environmentally responsible way when they are no longer useful. Read more
